“Perfect hotel in Kissamos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

I'm so glad we found this hotel and stayed here and met the lovely owners Aphrodite, Dimitri and their sons, it was an absolute pleasure to stay here, the family made us feel so welcome and would do anything to help.

The hotel is really beautiful, our room was huge with a view of the pool, sea and mountains, everything was so clean and comfortable. It's right by Mavros Molos beach which is lovely and the hotel is also a brilliant base to visit Elafonisi beach which is about an hour's drive away and recommended by Aphrodite, it is stunning with pink sands and turquoise clear sea (maybe more beautiful than the Caribbean!). The hotel is also a good base for the beautiful Balos Lagoon, you can get a ferry from around the corner, you can book with the hotel and it's only €20 and is a great day trip. Another lovely beach to visit is Falasarna which is only a short drive. The hotel is also not too far to drive from Chania airport. We travelled around the island quite a bit but it was lovely to come back to the hotel and chill out by the pool or beach, it's very relaxing here!

Kissamos is a lovely part of Crete, it's a lot quieter than the big towns which I think is perfect for relaxing, there's everything you need but it feels a bit more undiscovered and not overly touristy (yet!), there is a strip of bars about a ten minutes walk away, there are some nice restaurants, our favourite being the one just outside the hotel called Stelios & Katina which is run by a brilliant guy called Giorgio who made us feel very welcome and the food was delicous!

I'd definitely recommend breakfast, it's home made and different every day, some lovely pastries and even chocolate cake one morning, a real treat!

We were really sad to leave this lovely hotel and hope to be back again one day!

Beautiful and clean hotel located on the most beautiful beach in Kissamos (Mavros Molos). The hotel has nice sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach that you can rent at the price of a coffe.
Rooms are quiet, clean and cool. In the hotel there are a bar, a beautiful swimming pool with a kid's corner and wi-fi connection all over the hotel and the beach. City center is at 10 min by walk.
Staff's kindness, professionality and discretion made our holiday in this beautiful part of Crete really unforgettable.

It is a small family hotel and they are not professional. Be careful especially about the price that they propose when you enter to the hotel. At our check-out, they denied their promise, treating us as if we were lying. What was also surprising is that they did not give us the receipt for the payment.

Also we had the impression that what we paid for the breakfast in their bar was not fair.

Gentile Sig.re D' Alessandro Flavio,
You came to stay for ONE ONLY night and you were offered two choices:a room on ground floor and a room on first floor (which you chose, No 203). Next morning you asked me to prolong your staying and I answered to you that as you already know you cannot have this very room because is reserved for other guests;then you decided again to stay on groung floor, Room number 103; next morning you asked me again to stay for one more night and I told you that this day the only available room was No211 whice you decided to take again and having in mind that this very room has another price than the previous ones. And of course at the end you didn't pay the extra difference but that was not OUR fault; YOU have decided to prolong your staying and changing rooms every next day; we did NOT obliged you in no way.
Every morning you were having one coffee and one tea for your wife by the terrace (and this is not breakfast of course as everybody knows) and I was OFFERING you cakes and warm cookies and once I told you they were not to be charged you took them;receipts from the bar were always yours.
Your receipt, NO:1766 on the 8th of August 2012, in the total of 195euro given to you for your accommodation, is here for everyone who might want to have a look at and I'm really sorry I cannot attach it hereby. I'm really glad and proud to inform you that we are professionals and we react like ones, we never cheat our guests nor take advantage of them.On the contrary, they feel at home.
Thanking you once more for staying at APHRODITE BEACH we wish you and your wife a very pleasant and nice autumn.

This lovely hotel in Kissamos is right on a sandy beach. There are lots of sunloungers and umbrellas either on the beach or by the beautiful pool. The rooms are very spacious with a well equiped kitchenette and balcony with a beautiful sea view. The hotel owners are extremely helpful and very friendly. It is a short walk along the beach to the to the town and many restaurants. I had a great holiday there and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

This lovely family run hotel in Kissamos is ideally located by a private beach and near all local restaurants and facilities. Location is ideal also if you plan a day trip on the beautiful beaches of Falasarna, Balos and Elafonisi. The hotel is very nice, cosy and definetely spotless. We had a fantastic sea view room very nicely decorated. All rooms have a kitchenette corner, but we prefered to taste the homemade breakfasts: absolutely yummy! The owners of the hotels are so friendly and nice, always welcoming you with a sincere smile and ready to help out with tips and advice. They even arranged for us the car rental at a very good price. The days we were not travelling around the island, we enjoyed laying on the hotel's beach: it's nicely equipped and they have a fabulous bar under the shade of trees where they serve tasty salads and snacks. Service there is very good. Long story short: perfect hotel in a perfect location!!! Definetely recommended!!!!!!!!!

We spent a couple of days in this hotel as part of our honeymoon trip.
At our arrival we have found the room so nicely and romantically decorated with chocolates and flowers that it was almost a shame to remove the decorations to go to bed!
All in all our stay was very pleasant. Breakfast was delicious, the private beach is very nice and the location is very handy to reach the town centre, restaurants and all facilities of the area.
Thank you Aphrodite & Dimitri for making our stay so enjoyable!
